Cyber Engineer (Entry Level)

Job description

Create a battle-winning cyber capability.

As a full-time, entry-level Cyber Engineer in the British Army, you’ll:

  • Learn how to protect our frontline communications systems from cyber warfare threats
  • Join one of three focused trades: Information Services, Networks, or Infrastructure
  • Configure, deploy, and maintain operational and tactical communication systems
  • Engineer radios, satellite systems and computer networks
  • Build voice and data telecommunications networks
  • Earn an apprenticeship in Network Engineering or Cable Installing

To qualify, you must be between 16 years 6 months and 35 years 6 months, pass a basic fitness test, and have a grade C in GCSE Maths and grade D in GCSE English (or equivalent).

Set yourself up for life.

During your initial training, you’ll earn £16,844, after which your salary will rise to £21,424. If you set your mind to it, you could reach Corporal within 5 years, earning £33,065.

You’ll also receive 30 days’ annual leave every year (plus bank holidays and extra leave after operations), free medical and dental care, cheaper living costs, and free gym and sports facilities. And unless you're away on operations or training exercises, you'll normally work 8.30am to 5pm, Monday to Friday.

From your very first day of training with us, you’ll be gaining transferrable skills – skills that could set you up for life. You don’t need to know how to do the job before you get here, because we’ll give you all the entry-level training you need.

You’ll even get to travel the world, taking part in the Army’s adventurous training, and spending dedicated time playing the sports you love.
